Due date for electronic filing corporate tax return for assessment year 2013 extended


The tax authorities have decided to extend the deadline for the electronic filing of the corporate tax return for assessment year 2013 from 18 September to 1 October 2013. The deadline for paper filing remains set at 21 August 2013.

The extension has been granted in response to concerns about whether the deadlines were practically feasible as the tax authorities had announced earlier that collective extensions of the due date would in principle no longer be granted and that individual extensions would only be granted in very exceptional circumstances.

Despite the extension, to ensure a timely filing of the tax return, a preparation well in advance remains advisable. Do not hesitate to contact your KPMG tax adviser to assist you in this process.

As a reminder, the deadlines are applicable for resident companies, non-resident companies, and non-profit legal entities, with a financial year closing on 31 December 2012. The BizTax application for electronic filing would be available as of 16 May 2013.
